Yes, those nails. You either love or hate this cutting edge trend and regardless of which team you're batting for I, personally, love them. I'm not here to persuade you to suddenly adorn your extremities with spear like nails but to simply share some tips on false nails and where I get mine from.  I got these particular ones from eBay (after my local Boots were out of stock of the Elegant Touch ones) and I'm not disappointed. They are extremely affordable and even come with free glue! I painted mine with Models Own Utopia nail polish as I wanted something quick drying. I would recommend to paint before you stick - sort out which size nail you need and then using blue tack stick them down to a piece of paper and paint them, this way they are more likely to be smudge free. For removal, I would recommend the Elegant Touch Get 'Em Off as this is just very strong nail polish remover so it does the job much quicker.

Two months later and I'm back. Sorry for being absent on the blog recently (probably one of my most frequent phrases among "it blends out really nicely" of course), I really have no excuse other than I feel as though I had almost lost interest in blogging however the desire to share my thoughts on all things beauty is once again burning within me and today I thought I'd ramble on about my everyday (NB: everyday = a few days during the week when I want to look mildly presentable) make up.

For my base I used the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation (which is the most long wearing foundation I have ever tried) and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on my dark circles and any blemishes which I then set into place using the MAC Studio Fix Powder. In order to bronze up my skin and make it seem as though I have actually seen the sun in the past month (it's currently overcast in Manchester, as per usually..) I used the Max Factor Bronzer in Bronze 02 and the Collection Gorgeous Glow Bronzing Block to get dat glow. For brows, Illamasqua Brow Cake in Thunder has been my BFF lately - I just love it. I sometimes dampen my angled brush if I want to go extra defined on the brows. For eyes, it's the same old - Too Face Chocolate Bar Palette and topped off with lashings of the Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara. For lips, I used Sleek's Lipstick in the shade Barely There.
